Star Wars Themed
If you're looking for originality, this hotel definitely has that. Everything is very galaxy and star wars themed, which can take a little getting used to, especially if you are not into that type of stuff.
The first room we got, the AC was not working at all, and there was a strange musky smell, so we called downstairs and asked to change our room. The staff was very accommodating, switched us to another room on the same floor which had working AC so that was great.
The bathroom is a bit small for my liking, I guess compared to other hotels in Barcelona, it felt a bit cramped. Definitely making the most of the space in the rooms.
Before leaving, we did read reviews that mentioned it was very loud at this hotel due to being on top of the train station, but we did not find that at all. We had asked the front desk and he assured us they had double glass windows and there wouldn't be a noise disruption, and he was right! We didn't hear any of it.
The location of this hotel isn't bad. The area didn't feel the comfiest, but it's convenient to be right on top of the train station, but definitely not in the core of downtown Barcelona. There are some stores nearby - restaurants and convenience stores. We found a brilliant Italian restaurant called "La Villa" about a 5 minute walk from the hotel - a definite must try!
Overall a good stay. I would probably come back after getting used to the decor.
